Too many puppies are being shot in the dark.
Too many puppies are trained not to bark.
At the sight of blood that must be spilled
so that we may maintain our oil fields.

Too many puppies(x2)
Too many puppies are taught to heel.
Too many puppies are trained to kill.

On the command of men wearing money belts
that buy mistresses sleek animal pelts.

Too many puppies.(x4)
Too many puppies with guns in their hands.
Too many puppies in foreign lands.

Are dressed up sharp in suits of green and
Placed upon the war machine.

Too many puppies are just like me.
Too many puppies are afraid to see.
The visions of the past brought to life again,
Too many puppies, too many dead men.



"Too Many Puppies" is a single from the band Primus and the second single from their 1990 studio debut album Frizzle Fry. It was the first Primus song bassist and lead singer Les Claypool ever composed. A reworked version featuring second drummer Bryan "Brain" Mantia can be found on their Rhinoplasty EP.
The song is mostly about the band's reflection on war, and how many soldiers are too young to go off to war, parodying the idea of "the dogs of war" by claiming the dogs are merely puppies. The song was written shortly before the first Persian Gulf War and was about violence in the Middle East during that time period.
A video was in production for this song, but the project was cancelled when Primus was signed to Interscope Records. The video has been a rarity until 2003, when it was released on Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People.
Occasionally, when playing the song live, Les Claypool played the opening riff of Metallica's "Master of Puppets" as a bridge before the final verse.

It is actually let slip the dogs of war from Willie . My bad .

Marcus Antonius:
And Caesar's spirit, raging for revenge,
With Ate by his side come hot from hell,
Shall in these confines with a monarch's voice
Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war,
That this foul deed shall smell above the earth
With carrion men, groaning for burial.
Julius Caesar Act 3, scene 1, 270–275

Thanks. Now if we can just put that to music then maybe I can solve my problem once and for all.

I've heard somewhere of various rituals done by shamans and healers in many cultures ....
Maybe that is the glue to combine the two for you ?

Stand or fall, live or die (Stand)
Strong and true to the end (Now)
Fly the flag, let them see (Sky)
We will never bend the knee (Don't fail)
We are the last of all (Here)
If we give way we lose (No)
So can you stand with me? (We can)
Will you now pay your dues (Hai)
The tales they tell, of how we stand this day
We that defend our cause
Will last a thousand years
Come now the dogs of war

Break or hold, die or kill (Live)
Try or fail, or succeed (Fight)
We must be an iron wall (Hold)
When the heart receives the call (We go)
We are the least of them (Fight)
We are few, but we are brave (Yes)
So can you stand with me (We Will)
If it leads you to your grave (Hai)

The tales they tell, of how we stood this day
We few that know the law
Will last a thousand years
Hear now the dogs of war

Sun is set, darkness falls (See)
Now comes the enemy (Beware)
Draw sword and shield defy (Hai)
All their wives must scream and cry (Stand fast)
We are the last hope now (Last)
Of all our people fair, so will you die with me (We do)
Will you now do your share (Hai)

The tales they tell, of what we do this day
We that guard the door
WIll last a thousand years
Let go the dogs of war
